	EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE.
	THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO USE, RESULTS AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PACKAGE IS
	ASSUMED BY YOU AND IF THE PACKAGE SHOULD PROVE TO BE DEFECTIVE, YOU
	ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR OTHER
	REMEDIATION.

	That install applies to "Arkanoid"  1987 Discovery Software Int..
	It supports the following versions:
		PAL  1.04 2/28/88  17037 SPS #954  NDOS
		PAL  1.04 2/28/88  17591	   NDOS
		NTSC 1.05 3/31/88  13930 SPS #1136 NDOS
		NTSC 1.05 3/31/88 501065 SPS #1519 AmigaDOS

	That install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC to be in the path.
	Both can be found in the WHDLoad package.

	You need 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
	You can quit the game by pressing F10 (key can be changed with
	Tooltype "QuitKey=").
	
	Some bugs has been fixed, and the highscores will be saved now.
	All files can be compressed with ProPack/FImp.

	In game keys:

	F1 - one player game
	F2 - two player game
	F3 - one player bonus game (other levels)
	F4 - two player bonus game (other levels)
	F10 - toggles ball speed lock, when active on the next ball speed
	      change the speed will be set to slowest and will remain there,
	      deactivating will set the ball speed immediately to the normally
	      active one (only available in NTSC version)
	Space - pause
	A - toggle sound on/off

	To activate the cheat mode type DSIMAGIC (this will also drop a DS
	extra),	MINIMAGIC or CHRISCHIROGENE12965 (this will also give an extra
	message	after the demo and then displays all game backgrounds, this is
	also normally performed after 1664 demo runs). Enter the code in the
	title or while the game is paused. Then the following additional keys
	will apply:

	1-9/0 - set actual ball's speed (in PAL version only 2-7 and also
		available without cheat mode active)
	B - drop extra to open level exit
	C - drop extra to make ball sticky
	D - drop extra for three balls
	E - drop extra to enlarge paddle
	F - level skip to end boss
	L - drop extra for laser shot
	P - drop extra for extra paddle
	S - drop extra to slow down ball
	X - toggles ? (a value during level init will be set different)
	Enter (numerical block) - skip to the next level

	Once the cheat mode or the ball speed lock has been activated the
	highscore won't be saved anymore.
